Research Thesis Topic
Books, Culture and Identity
This project will explore the ways that book publishing practices and published literary works of both fiction and non-fiction inform, constitute or reflect social movements and issues such as gender, ethnicity, citizenship, nationhood, class, sexuality and identity. The focus is not on the written or published word but on a critically informed discussion of the publishing industry, publishing practices, published artefacts and book culture (festivals, prizes, fan communities etc.). There is room for the PhD candidate to tailor the project to suit their interests.
